Extradural hematomas are collection of blood between the dura and skull bone. These hematomas are common complication of head injury. Spontaneous resolution of extradural hematoma due to migration into the subgaleal space has been reported. We are reporting an unusual case of a 19-year-old male presenting with an extradural hematoma, which was formed because of migration of a subgaleal hematoma through the skull fracture. Our case emphasized the importance of assessment of patients presenting with subgaleal hematoma to prevent them from any neurological injury.
